#1182 Shobudani asagi

A totally fine and excellent razor finishing stone on one side and on
the back it is deemed as a prefinishing stone. It is not that the back
is all that coarse but more like the alternate grain pattern in the
clays is not as regular as the basic asagi green color clays. The
back can be used after a bevel setting stone and it would leave
shallower scratches.

On the asagi front of the stone I was able, using TheAxMethod along with
a diamond plate to raise a slurry, to bring a vintage Wade & Butcher
razor up to shave ready in the HHT-4 area with about 42 strokes on
each side that included 2 refreshings of the slurry.

The stone (toishi) has been lapped perfectly flat and the corners
and edges beveled unless otherwise noted.  All of my stones come
with a tested and appropriately sized tomonaguara slurry stone,
and a money back guarantee minus the return shipping.
